Owens, Tom Owens, and John Owens were born of Indian descendants and lived
in a small area located in Taylor, Mississippi, a community a few miles from
the town of Oxford, MS.
In the late 1930s, 1940s most of the Owens' families migrated to Chicago,
IL, Missouri, Michigan, Tennessee, Kansas, Texas, Louisiana, Ohio, Iowa, New
York, and Wisconsin.
The Jim Owens family members were and are religious, most of them became
preachers, pastors, evangelists, or missionaries. Also some are artists that
include: the gift of singing, musicians, painters, and we have our own
judge, the Great Grand-daughter of Jim Owens.
The second annual Jim Owens Family Reunion was celebrated June 14-16, 1996
at John W. Kyle State Park, Oxford, MS. Chairperson Argola Lee (Pie) reared
by Grandmother Olevia Penamon, daughter of Jim and Callie Owens."
